Entering the Stone by Barbara Hurd
Book DescriptionIn this exhilarating work, Barbara Hurd explores some of the most extraordinary places on earth, from sacred caves in India to secret caves in Arizona. With passionately informed prose, Hurd makes these strange dark spaces come to light, illuminating the natural history and spiritual territory of caves as powerfully as Kathleen Norris portrayed the Dakotas. "Entering the Stone" provides an awe-inducing tour through a fragile and beautiful subterranean world.

Books By Author Barbara Hurd
Listening to the Savage, Hardback (January 2016)
Barbara Hurd's Listening to the Savage weaves rich explorations of science, history, mythology, literature, and music. The listening of the book delineates and champions a kind of attentiveness to what is not easily heard and is written in language that is as precise as it is poetic, providing original ways of engagement in the natural world.
Stirring the Mud, Paperback (June 2008)
Contains nine essays which explores the allure of bogs, swamps, and wetlands. Detailing the land of carnivorous plants, swamp gas, and bog men, this work establishes a separate ground for thoughts about mythology, literature, Eastern spirituality, and human longing.
Walking the Wrack Line, Hardback (June 2008)» View all books by Barbara Hurd
Contains writing on beaches of several locations. Each chapter of this book starts with attention to an object - a shell fragment of a pelican egg, or perhaps a jellyfish - and then widens into larger concerns: the persistence of habits, desire, disappointments, the lie of the perfectly preserved, the pleasures of aversions, and, transformations.
